“Trainman, how do I get the Clapboard? I saw someone with it.” “Trainman, how do I get all the Director items? I’m taking lots of pictures but nothing happens!” I’ve been getting asked this a lot ever since the party, and I didn’t know the answer until now. You can indeed get all the Director items, it just takes a lot of work. To become a director, first you need to get the Digital Camera item and wear it. You can wear other items too, you just need at least the camera on. Then take pictures. Just keep pressing T on your keyboard and clicking the superstar penguins. I recommend you go onto a crowded server for the most penguins, switching rooms every little while.
Over time the white squares will light up on the path to become a director to show your progress. You have to manually open the progress bar, it does not pop up every time you earn an item. Eventually, after taking hundreds of pictures you’ll get all the items. I managed to do it in a little over an hour at today’s Album Release Field Friday, the whole time, for an hour, I took pictures of stars just to get all the items. Basically, it just takes a while to get every item. You’ll need patience. Even if it seems like the thing isn’t moving, you just need to take more pictures. Both I and other penguins have done it, and you can too. As far as I’m aware logging off does not affect your progress.
Besides, you have two weeks to do it. Good luck! (and I guess the memory card in the digital camera holds a lot of pictures! :P)
